Utilising the therapist scope of practice

by adminjay


Anna Middleton will cover how practices can utilise the hygienist and therapists’ scope of practice at the Online Dentistry Show.

During this webinar, Anna will discuss her experiences of how she is using her scope of practice in the dental setting.

Direct access has been a huge source of patients for Anna’s London Hygienist business. Since last year she has seen an increase of new patients and now sees between five to 10 new patients every week.

She puts this success down to utilising her full hygienist scope of practice. Anna was motivated to return to university to become a dental therapist because she could see how her business would benefit, as well as that of the dental practices she works in.

This webinar will look at the new patient journey. But also how DHTs can manage existing patients. And what work a DHT can undertake in order to improve practice workflow and appointments.

This webinar will also showcase how Anna has marketed herself to gain direct access patients.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand the scope of practice of DHTs and how to implement this into practice
  • See examples/cases of how to implement various elements of the DHT scope into a daily workflow
  • Gain confidence in working under direct access
  • Also explore marketing methods.
